Date with a Green Bean!

If you like fresh dates and figs and want to try something new with a green bean, how about this for a cool spring/summer salad. Keep that snickering to yourself.



6-7 cups fresh or frozen (thawed but still cold) organic green beans
1/2 large purple onion sliced/chopped
1 large avocado sliced/chopped near bite-size
1 large carrot thinly sliced on an angle
2 fresh figs or 2 dates or 1 of each finely chopped
1/4 cup of hemp seeds
1/4 cup rice wine vinegar (seasoned if you like)
1/4 cup organic olive oil
2 tblsp brown rice syrup

Mix all in bowl, toss, chill in refrigerator, then serve at your place of choice. Now that's some date!
